tavern lackey

As you may know, Michael “iMonk” Spencer heads up a weblog conversation at a site called “The Boar’s Head Tavern“.

Won’t bother linking my comment, but the other day I defended iMonk in the comments of another blog. Actually “defended” isn’t the right word. The blogger mistated something about iMonk, and then when iMonk tried to correct the mis-statement, the blogger promptly and deliberately ignored him. So I asked “what gives?”

Ordinarily I just make up the shirt, take a screenshot, and toss the CafePress order. But I may just have to actually get one of these.

    […] Over a year ago was my one big comment debacle, in which some yahoo stated that not only are my Arminian friends not saved, but neither am I because I believe they are. Frankly, the latter didn’t bug me — I know I’ve arrived somewhere when others definitively state that I’m not a Christian — I’m just waiting for the declaration to come from one of the big guns. In the meantime, I guess I’ll just have to content myself with being labeled a tavern lackey. […]

    […] several times on his blog, we’ve exchanged a few emails, and I even once was given a derisive nickname by another blogger while in Michael’s defense — a nickname that I wear proudly).  And […]
